From amazon.com:

The man most hated by the LAPD - a black lawyer who has made his name by bringing lawsuits alleging racism and brutality by police officers - has been found murdered on the eve of a high-profile trial.  The list of suspects includes half the police force.  And Harry Bosch is the detective chosen to lead the investigation.  The political dangers of the case are huge.  If it's not investigated fairly, the public outcry could make the Rodney King riots look tame.  But a full investigation will take Bosch into the ugliest corners of law enforcement.  To make matters worse, Bosch's wife, Eleanor, has disappeared.  Bosch fears she has left him - or succumbed to her gambling addiction.  He's not sure which would be worse.  Angels Flight reads in a white heat.  It continues to up the ante of the series that is "raising the hard-boiled detective novel to a new level - adding substance and depth to modern crime fiction." (Boston Globe)

ANGELS FLIGHT

An activist attorney is killed in a cute little L.A. trolley called Angels Flight, far from Harry Bosch's Hollywood turf.  But the case is so explosive - and the dead man's enemies inside the LAPD are so numerious - that it falls to Harry to solve it.  Now the streets are superheating.  Harry's year-old Vegas marriage is unraveling.  And the hunt for a killer is leading Harry to another high-profile L.A. murder case, one where every cop had a motive.  The question is, did any have the guts?

  • I try to maintain page numbers for audiobooks even though obviously there aren't any. I do this to keep track of pages read and I try to use the Kindle version page numbers for this.
  • Synopses marked with an asterisk (*) were generated by an AI. There aren't a lot since this is an iffy way to do it - AI seems to make stuff up.
  • When specific publication dates are unknown (ie prefixed with a "Cir"), I try to get the publication date that is closest to the specific printing that I can.
  • When listing chapters, I only list chapters relevant to the story. I will usually leave off Author Notes, Indices, Acknowledgements, etc unless they are relevant to the story or the book is non-fiction.
  • Page numbers on this site are for the end of the main story. I normally do not include appendices, extra material, and other miscellaneous stuff at the end of the book in the page count.
